HBO knows how to pique my interest. It certainly did with their latest teaser trailer for Game of Thrones, “Three-Eyed Raven Tease.” Only half a minute long, and with absolutely no content from the upcoming season 3, it still manages to make us sit up and say, “Augh! Is it Season 3 yet?”
It’s simple: The three-eyed raven soars around locations in Europe and the United States, the old world and the new. In the background, we hear the song, “The Rains of Castamere,” which was played at the end of episode 9, sung by “The National.”
But for fans who are awaiting season 3 as eagerly as I am, it’s enough to reach out and make me want to soar straight into March 31.
Check it out.
(And in case you don’t remember, the three-eyed raven [in the book, the three-eyed crow] visits Bran Stark in his dreams and teaches him previously unknown wisdom. For more information, with massive spoilers, see the entry in Wiki of Ice and Fire.)
